Over all cleanliness of the hotel was great. Had good food, when you could get it. Snack bar was only open for a few hours a day. The beach? What beach? I have a buddy with a pond bigger than this beach. A manmade inlet off of the main shoreline. There were no waves whatsoever. My room was cleaned two times in five days yet they beg for tips constantly, which i did give constantly. We were constantly badgered about buying a timeshare. Drinks were great and so were th pools. It seemed like everything died out after sunset. I would say that the age of the vacationers at this resort was about 50% over 50,25% over 40, and 25% under 40. My wife and I are in our mid 30's and we wanted a more happenin' place. My recommendation is for people who want a quiet, slow vacation, this place is for you. Don't waste your money if you want to have a blast or if you want to take a long walk on the beach with you're significant other.
It wasn't terrible, but I won't go back. I guess maybe when I'm 65 or so.
